GLOBE myBusiness, the small and medium enterprise (SME) business arm of Globe Telecom, has launched a wifi connectivity package that will help SMEs grow their businesses and increase their profits.
“Our thrust in inspiring success among entrepreneurs continues with the launch of the myBusiness WiFi Hub that will allow our SME customers to offer internet connectivity to their customers,” said Martha Sazon, senior vice president for Globe myBusiness.
“Definitely a sound opportunity for them to grow their businesses and increase profits,” she added.
Globe said that as demand for internet connectivity increases, more customers are looking for establishments that offer wifi access as the Filipino lifestyle has become more on-the-go and digital.
The same is true for establishments such as restaurants, cafes, and bed-and-breakfast inns which are looking into growing their businesses with wifi availability.
This opportunity led Globe myBusiness to introduce the myBusiness WiFi Hub, a new package that allows businesses to earn more by offering customers access to a wifi connection.
Globe said that establishments or businesses will be able to offer wifi for free or for a fee, opening up opportunities to attract more customers and at the same time, earn from this additional revenue stream.
The WiFi Hub has a built-in printer to generate and print individual log-ins and passwords for customers for better security and management.
It also comes with unlimited Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) to service more customers at no extra cost without the inconvenience of purchasing a new set of PINs each time.
The WiFi Hub can serve up to 20 simultaneous users and business owners can modify access to either time- or volume-based internet connectivity. The WiFi Hub is a secure connection and is not prone to abuse by non-paying customers.
Solutions include business websites, marketing tools, inventory and asset management systems and Google Apps for Work.
Other solutions are also available, designed to maximize profits through services like Globe Charge credit card terminals, vehicle trackers that boost efficiency, CCTVs for full visibility on assets such as store front and employees, and large format displays (LFD) that aid in additional business advertisements.
Globe myBusiness continues to provide SMEs more opportunities to put their business on the map and ultimately serve more customers by making business solutions more accessible.
The company believes that SMEs are the country’s economic driving force, and so it has been developing products and services to support their growth.
Latest estimates show that there are now more than 34 million Facebook users, more than 10 million Twitter followers and over 44 million Filipino internet users.
